2 Ingredient Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

Yesterday I sat down and was filling out my calendar for the next few weeks.  I started to get a little overwhelmed with how much will be going on for the rest of the year.  All of the school functions, playdates, parties and the holidays.  Oh, those end of the year holidays!  This year I plan on being a little more organized and make the most of my time.

That's were easy and comforting recipes come into play.  I'm already planning my Thanksgiving and Christmas menus and those tend to be pretty time consuming.  Don't get me wrong.  Those are two of my favorite holidays to cook and bake for!  With everything else going on in my life I need prepare more recipes like this ever-so-tasty Teriyaki Chicken.

There are three things that I laaauuuuve about this dish.

Freshly Cooked Black Beans

I really never was a fan of black beans until a few years ago.  They were either too bland or not very tender.  I had picked up an in store coupon for something and I got a 1 pound bag of dry beans for free.  They sat in my pantry for weeks until I decided to try them out.  And guess what?  I really couldn't keep my spoon out of the pot because they were so tasty!

FREE Hexagon 2015 Calendar

When redesigning my site, I knew I just had to have hexagons integrated as much as possible.  It might be a trendy thing, but I'm choosing to see it as a classic design!  There is just something about that shape make me happy!

It all started when I started my hexagon quilt years ago.  *Side note - Thank you for your huge response to something so dear to my heart!  I've gotten so many inquiries that a simple tutorial will follow soon!*  I started seeing hexagon patterns everywhere!  Home designs, fashion, and even paper goods.  I'm in love with it all.

Monster S'mores

Last week we sparked off early Halloween festivities by spending it with some of our great and fabulous Austin friends.  Amanda, who is just superb in every way (and the queen of all things Halloween) invited us over for a fun night of Monster S'mores.

Halloween Decorations

Earlier in the month I decorated our little cove with a few new Halloween decorations.  It's right inside our front door so it's the first thing people see when they come in or visit from the door.  Good thing you can't see my kitchen from that spot!!!  Seeing my dirty dishes is sometimes too scary!

Streusel Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread (Re-boot!)

There are so many movies out there that are just remakes of older movies.  Some waaay better than the original and some...maybe not!  I guess the newer terminology for those remakes is a re-boot.

Some of my recipes and/or pictures definitely need a re-boot!  This pumpkin bread is pretty popular already but, I couldn't resist tweaking it just a smidge.  I mean, what isn't better with a little powdered sugar sprinkled on top?

Butterscotch Sauce

I make a lot of recipes.  Some turn out and some do not.  Both can be epic in their own way, of course.  It's always disappointing when it's an epic fail, but it's oh so fantastic when they turn out the way you'd hoped.  This is one of those joyous recipe triumphs that I just can't get enough of.
